I am really not against the world baseball classic,but I believe MLB has just messed it up.

The tournament definitely should not take place now, nor in the USA or perhaps not in the northern hemisphere.

I realize that there are only two southern hemisphere teams playing, Australia and South Africa. it would not hurt to have the games played during December or January there. This would also help baseball addict get their fix. Baseaball could alo hold the games in Brazil, Argentina or Chille and promote the sport in those countries.

I could perhaps go for the games being played in the tropics, but definitely not this time of year.
